Everything You Need to Self-Publish

So You Can Publish Your Book Now

Do you have everything you need to successfully self-publish your book?

Whether you’re writing a helpful nonfiction work, a stunning genre novel, a community cookbook, or the next bestseller, the publishing process involves the same elements: preparation of your manuscript and production of your book. And don’t forget about marketing.

IWOSC/PALA’s 2019 Self-Publishing Intensive has the answers you need to start now and successfully publish your book. Our experts, Carla King of Self-Publishing Boot Camp and Sharon Goldinger of PeopleSpeak Consulting and the Publishers Association of Los Angeles, have over 45 years of traditional AND self-publishing experience and will cover EVERY aspect of self-publishing that you need to know.

PLUS, attendees will receive more than a dozen books, handouts, checklists, and timelines.
